Exhaust:
A few fanatics out there would pay for salvaged parts of “down-pipes” shipped to their door. For some bizarre reason, the catalytic converter can’t be resold, but the down-pipe, including...

Re: Power Steering Input Shaft Seal

There are the Edelman kits. There could be someone selling just a seal on eBay.

Re: 1998 SC2, MagnaFlow Exhaust Question

Waiex191,
sorry to be so dense. What you did is what I will do to extend the life of the resonator mid-pipe.
For the MagnaFlow, I would like to keep the whole thing stainless steel. It seems...

Re: 1998 SC2, MagnaFlow Exhaust Question

Maybe I’m rushing into this “MagnaFlow” thing too suddenly, I've only been at it for two years!

Re: Where are people buying fuel filters from? 2001 sl2.

Re: 1998 SC2, MagnaFlow Exhaust Question

Do you have any identifying paperwork, or a box label?
The reason I ask is, MagnaFlow identified the 23450 that I received as the correct part. The 23450 that I received looks nothing like the 23450...

I ordered a 23450 and it just now arrived. ...in an opened box.
It doesn’t look like the exhaust that Kevin Varns received, even though the box reads 23450.
